January’s program will feature MCCC member Dan Greene who will speak on Counterfeit Ancient Coins. He will have examples of a genuine coin and a deceptive replica and will use a scale to display the weight difference. Please note that the Margaret Schweinhaut Senior Center observes the cancellation polices of the Montgomery County Recreation Department. When the center is closed for inclement weather, MCCC will not meet on that day. MCCC will meet on days when the facilities are open. Further information and scheduling information will be provided on our website’s front page.
